Coconino FS Reports The Little Elden Trail begins within the boundaries of the City of Flagstaff, then leads the user into the heart of the Peaks trail system, at Schultz Tank. From this point you can connect to the Dry Lake Hills/Mt. Elden trails to the south, or the Kachina Peaks Wilderness trail system to the north.

The Little Elden Trail winds along the north side of Little Elden Mountain through stands of gamble oak and Ponderosa pine.
